To many who knew him, there was nothing odd about him. He was a normal kid…
On February 7, 2000, Yahoo.com was the first victim of the biggest distributed denial-of-service attack ever to hit the Internet. On May 8th, Buy.com was battling a massive denial-of-service attack. Later that afternoon, eBay.com also reported significant outages of service, as did Amazon.com. Then CNN’s global online news operation started to grind to a crawl. By the following day, Datek and E-Trade entered crisis mode…all thanks to an ordinary fourteen-year-old kid.
Friends and neighbors were shocked to learn that the skinny, dark-haired, boy next door who loved playing basketball–almost as much as he loved computers–would cause millions of dollars worth of damage on the Internet and capture the attention of the online world–and the federal government. He was known online as “Mafiaboy” and, to the FBI, as the most notorious teenage hacker of all time. He did it all from his bedroom PC. And he’s not alone.
Computer hacking and Web site defacement has become a national pastime for America’s teenagers, and according to the stories you’ll read about in The Hacker Diaries–it is only the beginning. But who exactly are these kids and what motivates a hacker to strike? Why do average teenagers get involved in hacking in the first place? This compelling and revealing book sets out to answer these questions–and some of the answers will surprise you. Through fascinating interviews with FBI agents, criminal psychologists, law-enforcement officials–as well as current and former hackers–you’ll get a glimpse inside the mind of today’s teenage hacker. Learn how they think, find out what it was like for them growing up, and understand the internal and external pressures that pushed them deeper and deeper into the hacker underground. Every hacker has a life and story of his or her own. One teenager’s insatiable curiosity as to how the family’s VCR worked was enough to trigger a career of cracking into computer systems. This is a remarkable story of technological wizardry, creativity, dedication, youthful angst, frustration and disconnection from society, boredom, anger, and jail time. Teenage hackers are not all indifferent punks. They’re just like every other kid and some of them probably live in your neighborhood. They’re there. All you have to do is look.

The comprehensive hacker dictionary for security professionals, businesses, governments, legal professionals, and others dealing with cyberspace
Hackers. Crackers. Phreakers. Black hats. White hats. Cybercrime. Logfiles. Anonymous Digital Cash. ARP Redirect.
Cyberspace has a language all its own. Understanding it is vital if you’re concerned about Internet security, national security, or even personal security. As recent events have proven, you don’t have to own a computer to be the victim of cybercrime-crackers have accessed information in the records of large, respected organizations, institutions, and even the military.
This is your guide to understanding hacker terminology. It’s up to date and comprehensive, with:
* Clear, concise, and accurate definitions of more than 875 hacker terms
* Entries spanning key information-technology security concepts, organizations, case studies, laws, theories, and tools
* Entries covering general terms, legal terms, legal cases, and people
* Suggested further reading for definitions
This unique book provides a chronology of hacker-related developments beginning with the advent of the computer and continuing through current events in what is identified as today’s Fear of a Cyber-Apocalypse Era. An appendix entitled “How Do Hackers Break into Computers?” details some of the ways crackers access and steal information.
Knowledge is power. With this dictionary, you’re better equipped to be a white hat and guard against cybercrime.
You may be a hacker and not even know it. Being a hacker has nothing to do with cyberterrorism, and it doesn’t even necessarily relate to the open-source movement. Being a hacker has more to do with your underlying assumptions about stress, time management, work, and play. It’s about harmonizing the rhythms of your creative work with the rhythms of the rest of your life so that they amplify each other. It is a fundamentally new work ethic that is revolutionizing the way business is being done around the world.
Without hackers there would be no universal access to e-mail, no Internet, no World Wide Web, but the hacker ethic has spread far beyond the world of computers. It is a mind-set, a philosophy, based on the values of play, passion, sharing, and creativity, that has the potential to enhance every individual’s and company’s productivity and competitiveness. Now there is a greater need than ever for entrepreneurial versatility of the sort that has made hackers the most important innovators of our day. Pekka Himanen shows how we all can make use of this ongoing transformation in the way we approach our working lives.
